Dickson 1 Good day Sergeant Major and fellow classmates. For approximately the next 10 minutes, I would like to develop for you the intricate philosophy behind 1860’s President Abraham Lincoln’s principles on leadership. Lincoln began his public display of these policies in 1858 in a race for Senator against Stephen A. Douglas. Though he lost the election, the principles that emerged gained him a national reputation leading to the Republican nomination for President in 1860. Throughout his presidency, Lincoln championed policies defined by the five principles outlined above: Wage only one war at a time, Use force only as a last resort, Never crush a man out, Have malice towards none and charity towards all, and Do the very best you know how – the very best you can – and keep doing so until the end. “We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Lincoln said this at a military cemetery dedication. Lincoln built the Republican Party into a strong national organization.
